The appeal of cinema to me lies in its ability to fully transform individuals by immersing them in an illusion that surpasses the “here and now”. There’s an addictive freedom to creating a world for people to lose themselves in. Many of the reoccurring themes in my work are focused on the interplay between conscious action and subconscious reflection. I am fascinated by experiences that transform people and incite change.
Film is a medium that allows us to transcend reality both as viewers and creators. In my works I try to take advantage of the fact that film allows viewers to experience both the external circumstances and the internal stimulation of a character within the film simultaneously.
